Virtually all of the GOP caucus would vote in favour , and a significant chunk of the DemoCrap caucus would vote with them . I believe that it would easily attrack 320 to 330 votes , maybe more , which would easily override any Presidential veto …

.. the next question is the Senate . The GOP caucus [45 members] would be virtually unanimous in favour of sanctions . How would the Dems react , that would be the question ? At least half , likely more would vote in favour of the initial legislation . The big question is the veto override …

They will not get the votes of the losers , and it will limit the impact of Dingy Harry ‘ s influence on the legislation .
